And yet another part of Colombia’s political spectrum

Earlier I considered the leading left-wing candidate, here (FT) is the insurgent, 77-year-old populist right-wing candidate Rodolfo Hernández:

Straight-talking and sometimes abrasive, Hernández is prone to gaffes. In an interview in 2016 he described himself as “a follower of a great German thinker, Adolf Hitler”, only to correct himself later and say he confused Hitler with Albert Einstein. As mayor, he angered Bucaramanga’s firefighters by lambasting them as “fat and lazy”.

Perhaps in the broader world something structural is afoot?
